Risk will never be eliminated, but it can be better managed and reduced

Our Hazards conferences share expert knowledge, latest developments and lessons learned in process safety, promoting a continuous focus on safer operations.

Covering every major aspect of process safety, and aimed at anyone who is active in process safety and risk management, they provide essential insight into how to manage and reduce risk effectively and offer excellent networking opportunities.

First staged in 1960, Hazards is held annually in the UK and is widely recognised as Europe’s leading process safety event. Sister conferences are held regularly in Australasia and Asia too.

Hazards 28 takes place on 15–17 May 2018 at the EICC in Edinburgh, Scotland, and will bring together process safety practitioners from around the globe.
